Many of you likely remember the billboard that went around several months ago from the McElroy Church of Christ. Well after the unintended press from their Billboard, which unintentionally drove people to our site, MOA decided that we would start a fund and raise money to do a Billboard of our own. It actually went to well, and before we knew it we had enough for three billboards and the backing of American Atheists. The plan had become to do a reply billboard to the McElroy Church of Christ along with a calling card Billboard and a modified version of the Lincoln Tunnel Billboard that American Atheists were doing.
Not much difference between those two boards.
We contacted LIND Billboard Company and worked with a very Nice Sales Rep named Kristin Yoshioka. We spent several weeks exchanging emails, planning locations, and reviewing the graphics for the Billboards. In late October everything was ready to go. They had the final Graphic, had done the mock ups and we had approved them. Everything seemed to be going off with out a hitch and I was extremely pleased with the company.
Fast forward to today, November 22nd 2011. This morning I recieved an email from the Vice President of LIND advising me of the following.
